Cichhetti by Mr. Beans, DLF Cyber Hub, Gurgaon

Cichhetti in Italian means “small bites” and is a regular favourite in the streets of Venice.

That way you are able to savour more dishes with no guilty pleasures.

Coq Au Vin – Red Wine Chicken: Highly highly recommended! The juicy chicken legs and breast are served with crispy bacon strips, mashed potatoes and grilled baby onions, button mushrooms, beans and broccoli.
